Re: Battery charge port cover (door) latch INOP and charging socket locking INOP

Re: Battery charge port cover (door) latch INOP and charging socket locking INOP

We have the ‘16 SE Funny, yesterday visited a friend who has the same model and I verified the same behavior. That is, it latches but does not lock while the car is locked. In other words, I can disconnect the plug from the socket while the vehicle is locked. Latching means audible click Barb engages,

Re: Heater disabled if outside air temp is 70F or higher
